I've been trying to think of ways to make money and save money since I'm no longer working and we don't have that extra income. I absolutely love being home with my kids even if I'm not the most organized person and really I'm a terrible homemaker. But I have fun with my kids, and they even have seemed a little surprised that I'm playing with them more instead of wanting to sleep all the time!
One of my ideas was to babysit in my home again. So if you know of anybody who is looking for a sitter, tell them I'm available! When I babysat before it was so hard because of unpredictable work schedules and a very teeny tiny apartment with not much room for five little ones to run around and really enjoy themselves. But now we have so much more room and a yard where the kids can release some of their stored up energy.
Another one of my ideas is to make cloth diapers. I know what you're thinking, eww gross. But if it could seriously save us tons of money, I'd be willing to suck it up and change and wash those disgusting diapers. But I don't know where to start. I'd like to try to make my own because buying cloth diapers can get very pricey. Have any of you ever tried cloth diapers, ever made them, have any advice? I'd love the help. I have a couple months to get them made so I thought I could make them over time. But I did think maybe I wanted to make some for Lucy so hopefully she would potty train sooner. Then again, I could just actually work with her and train myself. But honestly, any advice on cloth diapering?
I know I'm totally crazy!
